Algolia was built to help users deliver an intuitive search-as-you-type experience on their websites and mobile apps. We provide a search API used by thousands of customers in more than 100 countries. Billions of search queries are answered every month thanks to the code we push every day into production.
to join the InstantSearch team at Algolia. We are responsible for providing the best developer experience to our users through the development of open source UI libraries such as InstantSearch.js
. InstantSearch libraries are sitting on top of the raw Algolia API, providing UI semantics that are easy to use and understand, like a SearchBox widget to add to your webpage.
We're not using only one framework, but all of them (you don't need to know all of them though, we teach each others). We build open source tools for Angular
, our discourse forum
or our support system. We are at the frontline of the developer experience
at Algolia, a great position to have a big impact for anyone.
This is an opportunity for someone to help design and make an immense impact at a fast growing company. You should value and practice transparency, have the humility to accept your weaknesses and continuously strive to improve both personally and professionally.
Do you like, or would you like to, craft code, tools and libraries for developers? Do you love to design a clean API solving real-world use cases? Then apply and let's chat about it.
